Toronto city councillor flips bird to proposed ‘roof tax’

CityNews | posted Tuesday, Oct 25th, 2016

A Toronto city councillor has decided that flipping the bird is a good way to get a message across.

In a media release sent out on Monday, Coun. Giorgio Mammoliti attached a photograph of him giving two middle fingers with “tax this” written in white letters.

The release was sent to media as a response to Coun. Mammoliti thinking the roof tax is a cash grab.

Currently, taxpayers pay one amount for water and wastewater, but he said city staff want to create another charge for storm water.

The Ward 7 councillor said if council gets their way, homeowner with a hard surface roof would be paying more for a service they already have.
